Later aboard the airship, the crew encounter Feather once more seemingly in need of assistance. It is then revealed that shortly after their encounter, Feather accepted a request to locate a den of thieves from the village militia. A commotion is heard behind Feather, assumed to be the den of thieves by Lyria. Feather then explains that the entire den of thieves is still knocked out at their hide out, and that instead it is the village's militia after him for breaking the rules of the request. Feather then asks the main character if he can join their crew in order to achieve his dream of achieving the ultimate strength. The main character accepts his request and is again challenged to a fight, only to be reminded of the incoming village militia. After making Feather promise to stop challenging random people over and over, the crew continue their journey.
Later, the crew head off with Feather to dispatch monsters from a village. There they find out that an imperial soldier has been stealing from the villagers. Believing him to be a worthy opponent, Feather sets out to find this imperial soldier and challenge him to a fight. Upon encountering the imperial soldier, Feather attempts to persuade him to stop terrorizing the village, which only angers the soldier. Realizing that he won't be swayed, Feather then challenges him to a fight, claiming that they'll both reach an understanding of each other's hearts through their fists.
Following the fight, the imperial soldier realizes that what he's been doing is wrong and wishes to make amends with the villagers by returning what he stole. Feather, impressed with the soldier's show of strength, reassures him that if he apologizes sincerely, he will be forgiven. Vyrn then brings up how reckless it was for Feather to try to make understand another person by punching them. Feather then reveals that his role model was a person who could fight any opponent on equal footing with just his fists and come with an understanding of them afterwards. He never forgot the encounter with this person and strives to become even stronger, such that he can understand event the hearts of primal beasts using his fists.

Letting Fists Do the Talking
(Captain) was suddenly challenged to a fight by a mysterious boy named Feather. Our heroes declined the challenge, but later they ran into Feather again by chance while they were preparing to leave. Feather challenged our heroes a second time, but they refused a second time, so he stubbornly insisted on joining them on their journey.
(Captain) and company had accepted a request to clear out the monsters in a certain village.
Our heroes had completed their request without incident and were heading back to the village when a lone boy suddenly blocked their path.
Vyrn: Huh? You need us for something, dude?
???: Heh... I was watching you guys. I gotta say, you sure know what you’re doing! You’re pretty skilled for your age!
???: Those monsters weren’t enough for you, were they?
Lyria: Ummm... What are you talking about?
???: Oh, please... Don’t bother trying to hide it.
???: You guys heard about the monsters that not even the village militia can handle, so you got your hopes up, right?
???: But what a shame... They weren’t even strong enough to make for a good warm up. You couldn’t even get the chance to use your full strength...
Vyrn: Hey now... That’s not why we took the monster extermination request, you know...
???: Stop. There’s no need to hide it. From what I can tell, you’re pretty skilled.
???: And I must grow even stronger than I am now for the sake of my dream...
Feather: Therefore... Would you grant me, Feather, the honor of facing off against you in battle?!
- I refuse
Feather: Oh, I get it... You’re one of them bashful types, aren’t you?Choose: I refuse
Feather: Oh, I get it... This is a bad time for you, I take it?Continue 1
Vyrn: What? NO! How did you come to THAT conclusion?!
Lyria: Umm... Listen... (Captain) really has no intention of fighting you, so...
Feather: I see... Then I guess it’s just not gonna happen!
Feather: I don’t intend to force anyone to do something they don’t want to do, so... I will leave quietly.
Feather: Next time... if there is a next time... let’s let our fists do the talking!
And so, (Captain) and company watched as the boy turned on his heel and left.
Vyrn: Sigh... What was THAT all about? Get a life, kid...
Lyria: Hmmm... F-For now, let’s just get back to the village! Right, (Captain)?
Lyria: Um... Is this the last of the luggage to be brought aboard the airship?
Vyrn: Hm? Sounds like there’s a commotion outside... I wonder what’s...
Feather: ! I’m sorry to ask! Could you take me in for just a... Wait, you people again?!
Vyrn: Whoa!!! Y-You’re the guy from before...!
Lyria: Wh-what’s wrong? Is someone after you...?
Feather: Well... After we talked, I went and accepted a request to locate a den of thieves, you see...
Feather: I went into their den alone to test my skills, but there were more thieves than I expected...
Lyria: Then... Are you saying the thieves are after you right now...?!
Feather: Uh, no? Those guys should still be passed out on the floor of their hideout.
Feather: It’s just... I broke the rules of the request, so now the village militia’s after me...
Vyrn: Oh, good grief... Way to go, genius...
Feather: But I didn’t think I’d run into you again, (Captain)...!
Feather: This must be fate! The stars have aligned so that (Captain) and I can duke it out!
Feather: So, yeah... Bring it on! Fight me!
Lyria: Stop it! (Captain) already said no! Do you know what no means?!
Feather: I see... So you won’t change your mind, (Captain)...? I guess that’s part of what makes you so strong...
Feather: But I have no intention of giving up! Once I decide on something, I’ll pursue it for as long as it takes!
Vyrn: HEY! Does that mean... Don’t tell me...!
Feather: From what I can tell, you’re a skyfarer, aren’t you, (Captain)?
Feather: I’ll be accompanying you on your journey across the skies! Until you agree to duke it out with me, that is!
Lyria: Ummm... Wh-What should we do about this, (Captain)?
Choose: Okay, fine
- Okay, fine
- I’m not gonna fight you
Feather: Oh? Huh... You gave in so easily. That was unexpected.
Feather: In that case, could you at least agree to fight m...
Vyrn: HEY! Just give the hell up already, would you?!Choose: I’m not gonna fight you
Feather: I see... Well, I guess that’s how it’s gonna be. I’ll give up on it for now.
Feather: Besides, my goal is to achieve the ultimate strength.
Feather: If I travel with (Captain), I’ll get stronger, no doubt about it! I just know I will!Continue 2
Lyria: H-Hey, listen! That’s cool and everything, but shouldn’t we take off before the village militia gets here...?
Feather: Whoops! I nearly forgot! Well then, let’s be off!
(Captain) and company practically fell all over themselves in their hurry to get the airship ready for departure.
After making Feather promise to stop challenging random people over and over, our heroes continued their journey.
The party has arrived at a village after receiving a request to hunt monsters. At the village, they hear that an imperial soldier is pillaging the village like some bandit. Feather is motivated to punish the imperial soldier.
After receiving a request to hunt monsters, (Captain) and company arrive at a village.
The atmosphere at the village is gloomy. A depressed villager comes to talk to the party.
Villager: Oh... Are you the skyfarers here to hunt the monsters?
Feather: Oh? You don’t look too happy.
Feather: Don’t you worry. Me and (Captain) will beat those monsters down real fast...
Villager: Well... The monsters aren’t the only cause of our headaches...
Vyrn: Say what?! Why is there an imperial soldier here?!
Feather: A soldier who pillages like a bandit... I find that to be a worthy opponent!
Feather: How about it? (Captain). Why don’t we go and punish that imperial soldier ourselves?
Lyria: Sounds good! We can’t leave the villagers if they are in need!
Feather: Then it’s decided! Let’s head out right away! I can’t wait to beat them down!
Spirit Fist: Scene 2
Feather tries to persuade the imperial soldiers to quit. However, this only angers the imperial soldiers. Feather decides to stop talking to them and prepares to fight. He insists that crossing fists will give rise to true understanding as he prepares to fight at full strength.
Imperial Soldier: Hey you! Who are you?! Are you some bodyguards the villagers hired?!
Feather: No... We’re just some passing skyfarers... We’re heroes of justice!
Vyrn: No way! Well, then again... We do go around slaying evil...
Feather: But you seem to know exactly who hates you.
Feather: That means you also know that you’re doing something bad.
Feather: Then why don’t you just stop this? The villagers are being troubled by you.
Imperial Soldier: Shut up! Who the hell do you think you are, kid?!
Feather: Good grief... I guess you wouldn’t understand.
Vyrn: All right! Then we won’t go easy on you...
Feather: Yeah... Let’s fight until we’re all satisfied!
Vyrn: What?! You want to duke it out?! That’s not the point here...
Feather: If fists cross, true understanding a deep bond will form...
Feather: Now let’s fight! Let’s speak with our fists! My fists can talk to your heart!
Spirit Fist: Scene 3
Feather made the Imperial Soldiers mend their ways. There is someone that Feather seeks as his role model. Feather talks about his dream to become as strong as that person and use his fists to communicate with primal beasts.
Feather: Hehe... You got a hot heart inside that chest...
Feather: I can feel your heart... through your fists.
Imperial Soldier: Wow... I didn’t think there was someone like you. I feel like I’ve waken up.
Imperial Soldier: I’m, um... sorry. I’ll return everything I took from the villagers.
Feather: I see... That’s good. If you apologize sincerely, I’m sure the villagers will forgive you.
As he announced, the stolen items are returned to the villagers, bringing back peace as well.
Vyrn: Geez... You know how reckless it is to try to understand the other guy by punching each other?
Feather: There’s someone I look up to.
Feather: That person can fight equally against anyone with only fists... and has come to an understanding with every opponent.
Feather: I can’t forget that. I want to become stronger just like that man.
Vyrn: I see! So this is the dream Feather talked about!
Feather: Yeah. That’s why I want to be able to fight equally with primal beasts so I can have a heart to heart!
Vyrn: Uhh... I don’t think that’s possible...
Feather swears upon his fists to achieve his grand dream.
Chasing after his role model, he will continue to improve himself, no matter how reckless he may have to be to achieve that.
No Holds Barred
There they found Aliza and Feather, a fantastically disciplined duo. (Captain), Lyria, and Vyrn watched on as the two decided to prove whose fancy footwork and flurries of fists could outdo the other’s. It was a bout they seemed quite used to. But the only clear result of the battle was that they both held each other’s prowess in high regard.
Lyria: Ah! Aliza!
Aliza: I’m not done yet! It’s okay, Lyria! I just took a little tumble is all!
Feather: Ohoho... you’re more gutsy than I thought!
Aliza: Haha! Of course! Let’s go again!
Feather: You got it! These fists aren’t finished yet!
Vyrn: Sigh... where the hell are they getting all this energy?
There on the island, Aliza and Feather devoted themselves entirely to their training.
Feather: Whew... that’s more like it. And here I was holding back!
Feather: Bring it on! Show me what you can do!
Aliza: Hehe! How long d’you think you can keep running your mouth?
Lyria: Amazing! Aliza! Feather! Both of them!
Vyrn: I guess it is amazing... I don’t know if I could keep that sort of thing up every day, myself...
Lyria: Well... it must be something about the way they fight that keeps them so spry!
Lyria: Hey, (Captain)... who did you like better?
Choose: Aliza’s got some mighty fine footwork
- Aliza’s got some mighty fine footwork
- Man, Feather has some furious fists
Feather: What?! Quit playing around, (Captain)! Here I thought we were on the same level!
Vyrn: Wha?! D-don’t tell me you were listening...
Aliza: I knew it! Wow! You really know your stuff, (Captain)!
Aliza: Hehehe... there you have it! Nothing can match a little Screaming Flame footwork!
Feather: ... what’d you say? No foot can speak like a good fist! You can’t even call it mumbling!
Aliza: Hey! What’s that supposed to mean?!Choose: Man, Feather has some furious fists
Aliza: What?! There are some things you just don’t say!
Lyria: Huh? You were all the way over there a second ago... how did y?
Feather: Ohoho! Knew I could count on you, (Captain)! You got the eye of the tiger!
Aliza: Grr... tiger, my butt! Feet’ll beat fists any day of the week!
Feather: ...What was that? Friend or no, I’m not letting that one go!Continue 1
Lyria: Oh, my... I feel like something bad is about to happen...
Vyrn: Jeez... you can’t even tell if they like each other or not...
Aliza: Hmph... I guess it’s time to separate the wheat from the chaff once and for all, Feather.
Feather: You’re really asking for it... guess the only way to prove I’m right is for you to take a few knocks!
Feather: The best talking’s done hand-to-hand! Show me you mean business!
Aliza: Hehe! I think you meant to say feet!
Aliza: Alright! Go for it! Just don’t expect any mercy! You’re about to learn the secrets of the craft!
Feather: Whoo! Let’s go! I’m hitting you with everything I’ve got!
Their battle cries threatening to rend the sky in two, Aliza and Feather’s duel shook the island.
A few hours later...
Feather: Hah... hah... you got yourself some... moves...
Aliza: Hah... y-you... too...
Though both of them felt they’d been bested, there was apparently no clear winner or loser. Aliza and Feather declared the match a draw.
Feather: I got wiped. Screaming Flame, eh? Scary stuff.
Aliza: Thanks! I’m just about to collapse, myself. You ought to register those things as lethal weapons, Feather!
Feather: Ah... you know... these fists are my pride and joy...
Lyria: They made up... good...
Lyria: Hehe... for a second I didn’t know what was going to happen.
Vyrn: Whew... I’ll never understand why some people get so fired up...
Feather: What?! Vyrn... don’t tell me you can’t understand our passion?!
Vyrn: Er, no... I mean, uh...
Feather: Oh, Vyrn... there’s no deeper sorrow than to be misunderstood...
Feather: But I don’t think we can duke it out...
Aliza: I got it! Vyrn can come and train with me!
Vyrn: What?! When did we start talking about training?!
Feather: I got you... what a great idea! And there’s no time like the present!
Aliza: You need to get the basics down first! We’ll start with sprints! With me, Vyrn!
Feather: Whoo! Let’s go! And once we’re done with that, how about 1,000 push-ups?!
Vyrn: Hold up! (Captain)! This isn’t funny! Help me out, here!
With every ounce of willpower they had, Aliza and Feather threw themselves into their training.
While an outsider might call it admirable, those actually involved would hesitate to call their fervor anything but disastrous.
